There are few things worse than sustaining a serious injury in an accident due to no fault of your own. Fortunately, we live in a time when many advances have been made in terms of motor vehicle safety features. Though airbags have been around for quite some time, they’re even better now than ever. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that airbag defects don’t exist, and sometimes, after an accident, we don’t realize our airbag was defective until it’s too late. In the worst cases, a defective airbag can result in death. If you or a loved one was harmed in an auto accident due to a defective airbag, you need to speak with a seasoned San Antonio, Texas defective airbags lawyer from the Sahadi Legal Group to learn more about these cases and how we can help you pursue the financial compensation to which you are entitled. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What can cause an airbag to become defective?

There are various potential causes of airbag defects. Just some of those are as follows:

  • Dangerous design
  • Deployment without provocation
  • Malfunctioning inflators
  • Untethered airbags
  • Defective sensors

How do I know if I have a valid claim?

To start, if you were hurt due to a defective airbag, you’ll likely have a valid product liability claim against the airbag designer/manufacturer. However, you must prove that the airbag defect was a direct result of their negligence when designing or manufacturing the airbag and/or materials used in the airbag. That said, these claims are sometimes twofold. For example, if you were injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, while also sustaining an injury because of a defective airbag, you may also have a valid claim against the other driver. In this case, our legal team will work to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that your accident would not have happened, had the other driver followed the rules and regulations of the road.

As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, we should recover compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you or your loved one has incurred as a result of your accident.
